When Eli Beer, founder and president of United Hatzalah, returned to Israel from Miami on April 21 following his recovery from COVID-19, he was given a hero’s welcome at Ben-Gurion Airport.
The event, which marks the Hebrew date of the reunification of Israel’s capital in 1967, is the second major event that the organization has hosted via live stream in the month of May.
“Saving Lives Sunday,” a virtual benefit to support the emergency response organization United Hatzalah of Israel in its fight against COVID-19, raised over $1 million.
It also featured a tribute to Eli Beer, United Hatzalah’s director, who recently overcame a serious bout of COVID-19.
The event, a virtual telethon to help United Hatzalah in its fight against the coronavirus, will include the likes of Israeli mentalist Lior Suchard, singer Dudu Aharon and Amar’e Stoudemire.
Beer accused Litzman of preventing United Hatzalah from taking part in the country’s fight against coronavirus.
"He’s been everywhere, and now it is time for him to come home to his small family and his huge family at United Hatzalah."
The woman, who had lit candles on every occasion for 70 years straight, was able to keep her tradition going.
Beer, head of the country’s second-largest emergency medical service, spoke to his family in Israel from the hospital, according to the report.
With 30,000 volunteers and unique, innovative hi-tech, the center hopes to assist Israelis in the moments of their greatest need.
